The Christmas jumper game seems to get tougher and tougher every year, doesn’t it? Especially if you work in an office. We’re all encouraged to really up our game every year in the Christmas Jumper department for things like Christmas Jumper Day (13th December this year, FYI). It’s no longer enough to just rock up in the same cheap Primark number we used last year; these days, if it doesn’t sing, light up, squeak or require eye protection to look at, it’s just not good enough.
Shame is the word. Shame.
Well, this year Missguided has unveiled a genius way to win at any Christmas jumper game (be it at the office, at the Christmas dinner table or down the pub) without fail and it involves your dog. Missguided has just released a range of matching owner and pup turtlenecks, as well as Christmas jumpers for dogs. And cuteness is not even the word for it.
I know what you’re thinking. Matching jumpers for owners and their dogs must be criminally naff. I thought the same thing, but was surprised to see – dare I say it – how chic these are.
F*ck cheap Christmas tat shedding from your jumper – look how cute this sausage dog looks. LOOK! Waltz into your office wearing these – pup in matching jumper in a statement doggy carrier – and it’s game over.
Goodbye light-up tatty Christmas jumpers, hello fashion-forward festive knits.
Then of course, you could always make your dog play the Christmas jumper game for you; they’ll look adorable and you won’t hate yourself in years to come when Facebook reminds you of what you were forced to wear. Missguided has your pooch covered, literally.
This one’s my personal favourite. If I was a fashion-forward dog, I’d be in there like swimwear.
So, if you have a pooch that’s partial to a bit of knitwear action, then these latest offerings from Missguided are a sure-fire way of winning this season’s Christmas jumper games and looking pretty fetch while you’re doing so (get it?).
The dog jumpers come in three different sizes – Small (for the likes of chihuahuas and Yorkshire terriers), Medium (for the likes of Jack Russells and pugs) and Large (for the likes of terriers and beagles).
H&M is at it too! They’ve teamed up with Pringle of Scotland to create matching owner and dog outfits and we are here for it. The knitwear will appeal to both fans of the brands but also those who simply love to wear matching clothes with man’s best friend. The line is already available within stores and online as part of the Conscious line, which means you can be sound of mind that these items are eco-conscious.
Here’s a ‘paw-some’ example to pooch over (I’ll stop now).
